Notes: The weekly opening range broke to the downside early in the week with the pair continuing to trade within the confines of a descending channel formation dating back to October 24th high. Today’s daily candle has also made an outside reversal with short exposure warranted below the daily high. Our scalp bias will remain weighted to the downside below 93.80/87 which represents the 38.2% retracement from the decline off the monthly high and the September close high.

Near-term price action looks a tad stretched with rallies likely to offer more favorable short entries. A breach above 94.16 risks further topside advances with such a scenario eyeing subsequent topside resistance targets. Keep an eye out for data prints out of Australia and China tonight as they may charge some volatility in the pair. Note that with the November opening range now coming into focus, we will remain prudent with price action over the next week or so likely to offer further clarity on a medium-term directional bias.

* It’s extremely important to give added consideration regarding the timing of intra-day scalps with the opening ranges on a session & hourly basis offering further clarity on intra-day biases.
